Neelix's Eyes

I noticed a slight change in his contacts early in the series, which I thought was odd because they made him look cross-eyed almost. But I'm almost done with season 7 now, and I've noticed his eyes are brown in these last couple of episodes (presuming it's his natural eye color). Perhaps they changed earlier and I didn't notice. Anyway, does anybody know, was it because Ethan Phillips had trouble with the contact lenses?

Re: Neelix's Eyes

Yes if you noticed(which you did) that his eyes change a few times over the series but yes, he was allowed to stop wearing them during the finally season. Ethan said he wanted the writers to mention in an ep. that talaxian eye color changes as they get older but they never got around too it. If you notice, no other Talaxian we meet has Neelix' eye color. Maybe orange eyes to Talaxians is like Blue or Green to us?
